Internet of Things: Technology & Applications

Programme Code: CRS-N-0045667


The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming our physical world into a dynamic system of connected devices on an unprecedented scale. Advances in technology are making possible a more widespread adoption of IoT, from pill-shaped micro-cameras that can pinpoint thousands of images within the body, to smart sensors that can assess crop conditions on a farm, to the smart home devices that are becoming increasingly popular. But what are the building blocks of IoT? And what are the underlying technologies that drive the IoT revolution?

In this 1-day course, our trainer from Alibaba Cloud will deliver an overview of exciting and relevant technical areas essential for anyone who wants to find out more about IoT.
